Sir John Soane’s key to Lincoln's Inn Fields

Museum number: X259

Curatorial note

All owners of properties around the square were Trustees of Lincoln's Inn Fields and each had their own key to the railings enabling them to make use of the private square. The key is marked not with the name of the property owner but the house number and such keys were presumably passed on from owner to owner when the property changed hands.
